Ottawa Rated As Best Canadian City

29 07 2010

Well, it’s official! MoneySense website has confirmed what we Ottawans already knew;  Canada’s capital is ranked as the number one place to live in Canada. This is the third time Ottawa has earned this distinction. In 2007 & 2008 we were  at the top of list but in 2009 Victoria edged us out. It’s good to regain the title for 2010!

Although Ottawa is reknowned for it’s beauty & amenities such as the Rideau Canal, the Bytown Market, nearby Gatineau Park and of course, the Parliament Buildings, the MoneySense poll did not just base their list of the  top cities in Canada  solely upon  aesthetics and amenities.  Other factors such as weather, air quality, population growth, unemployment, affordable housing,  income & crime rates influenced the rankings. Ottawa scores well in all these categories.

So whether you’re a long time Ottawan or  just considering a move to Canada’s capital city, revel in the knowledge that this city is tops!
